On arrival we were greeted by Michelle. She made us from the start feel welcome and that nothing was a problem. We were shown to put rooms (adjoining family room). which were spotlessly clean. Also in the room was all you expect and more, tv, hairdryer, tea and coffee making, toiletries. The hotel itself has a lounge and garden, and... More

We stayed for 5 nights at this lovely b & b. We were made so welcome by the owner and staff that we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else! Breakfast was the best we have had and if Michelle didn't have in what we wanted it would be available the next day. The rooms and hotel are spacious, clean and... More

I would not hesitate to recommend The Lawns to anyone looking for a hotel within easy walking distance of Sandown. We only stayed one night in a double room but the room and en suite were immaculately clean with every convenience we wanted, including free wi-fi. Michelle and her staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly from finding... More

My two friends and I stayed here for 5 nights the second week in July. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time, room was immaculate, loved the honesty bar and the fact that we could put stuff in the fridge in the lounge. Breakfast was one of the best, great selection and cooked to order. Ignore the recent review about having... More

We were on the island for the weekend and my Husband made a mistake with the booking and put the wrong dates. (DOOFUS) So when we arrived on the island, after getting stuck on the M25 and missing the ferry by 5 minutes it was a bit of a trauma to discover we had nowhere to sleep. We went to... More

This hotel is not what I would call 4 star really. The decor and the quality of service was more like 3 star. The food wasn't to my taste and we had to wait some time for breakfast each morning but I could forgive that. The thing that made our stay poor was the way the booking was organised. I... More

We stayed at The Lawns with our three sons for a few nights and wish it could have been longer. The staff were great, rooms spacious and immaculate and breakfast fab! A lovely place to stay and we would most definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

The room was fantastic, very clean with everything you needed to make your stay good. Breakfast was lush. Michelle was very helpful and went out of her way to ensure her... More

A friend and I stayed at The Lawns for 3 nights in early June. We shared a lovely twin room that looked out over the garden and, being higher up, gave us a view of the sea. The railway station, town and beach are all within easy walking distance. Breakfast was very generous with lots of choice and the service... More
